Look, mum! One hand! That’s all it takes to quickly zoom in and out when you’re shooting a Snapchat video. That’s right, no pinching required.

Here’s how easy it is to pull off the fancy one-handed-zoom technique:

Open Snapchat’s camera and hold the shutter button with your thumb to start recording a video. As long as you don’t lift your thumb from the screen, you’ll continue to record – no need to keep your finger on the button.

Slide your thumb up and down the screen to zoom in an out.

Now simply slide your thumb up to zoom in, down to zoom out.

Go fast. Go slow. Zoom in and out repeatedly. See how easy it is to pull off dramatic and hilarious effects?

To stop recording, just lift your thumb and you’re done.

Happy Snapping!
